march 24 of 2011 her favorite stock at the time was monsanto, up more than 30% since then. cassandra, do you still like it, quickly, on monsanto? >> still like monsanto. we would buy it here. because the long trend remains in place. population in the world is going to continue to grow, and that's the driver because we need seed technology. liz: we need food. okay. let us go straight here and say that there are people who still believe the fiscal cliff is coming, and europe is still a problem, and there's so much -- and i want to remain conservative yet pick sticks -- pick stocks still. how do you go about doing that? >> you pull out a few hairs every morning. [laughter] yes we still have those issues in the backdrop, but you have to look domestically at what is going on, and we seem to have found a bottom in real estate. and so that is now for us a long trend going forward in place. liz: let's go macro and say do you like anything outside of the united states? or do you feel like you want to just nest around here? >> no, we do like things that have exposure outside the united states,

of monsanto and other corporations against it. >> so you both touched on it when you were answering that question, the role of government and what is appropriate and i am curious more of a general question, starting with you mr. leno. what do you think that the government should do and when should the government step aside? >> certainly. >> one of the most important roles of government, and for state government is to provide public safety and i think that goes beyond just the police and fire protection, but also to make sure that we keep our air safe. that we keep our water clean and drinkable, which is not the case in many parts of the state right now. that we make sure that our food is safe as well. and so, that is where regulation does come in. there is also, when you ask where the government should step aside, we work on a bill this past year which reforms the regulations for permitting of solar installations for residents and commercial properties. this impedes the expansion of a great industry that is employing more and more people, that can provide more and more tax benefit t

, really, it's much more than about a label. yes, i'm a37. people tend to be suspicious of m monsanto, big companies that are behind this, that don't necessarily trust the fda, they don't necessarily trust bio technology, where some people in this feels biotechnology is going to be too high in so places. if you have to label something just for california, it's going te be pretty mplicated pretty quickly. >> they aren't asking that the products be made differently, they're just asking to let people know. >> that's a very good point. what that means is you can't have something labeled just for california. >> i've heard, though, that there's some thought that rather than have to break it, some gmo products in some of their foods and that cost will evtually get paid off to skurmds. >> you could be surprised, makes no difference at all. it could be you laperred. in that scenario, they would want you to reformulate. and he's with organics or non h gmo, it could lead to divorce. pretty much die verge he not is you're simply changing a label, 2 thousands. what do you gentlemecally. are not to

genetically modified foods are monsanto and dupont. why would they resist informing consumers about what they are eating when 61 other nations, including china and india, already label these products? >> well, that's a fair question, martin. it's a really fair question. i mean, at the end of the day all we're talking about here is a label. one can only assume that for monsanto and dupont they simply don't want consumers to know what's in their food, which quite frankly, is a stunning indictment of their credibility. >> why do they not want to know, tom? why do they not want us to know, todd? >> they're fearful, i think, that if consumers do know what's in their food, whether it's insecticides or bacteria or viruses, but we're really talking about genetically engineered ingredients, food that's altered in a laboratory, they're fearful people won't buy it. >> right. we have a republican running for president who, as you know, will say and do almost anything to win, and whoa wants the states to decide virtually everything, as i said earlier apart from abortion. if you win this on november the 6t

, that down about 3%. top holdings there, monsanto, dupont. david: liz, let's take a look at that index you were talking about, the volatility index. when things go south, as they have, this usually goes up. this is not a stock, this is an index, but there are stocks that are linked to this if you think things are going to continue to go south. this was just down below 15 not long ago, it jumped about 13% today, it's up to almost 19 right now. again, when it got down below 15, people began to wonder, jeez, how low can this thing go? apparently, it reached its limit at that point. liz: you could argue it was dupont and 3m with earnings reports that people didn't embrace, but today's selloff theoretically started in europe as worries mounted about spain's ability to overcome its debt troubles. again you see that the ftse 100 down about a percent, you saw the dax down 14 percentage points as well. david: when the bell rings, the action begins right here. we have facebook, netflix, broadcom and panera earnings. not so much what their earnings or losses are, but whether mark zuckerberg

have on tonight on "mad money." very disappointing. this is one of those where monsanto reports tomorrow. that's the star of the ag show right now. >> the story of the mosaics highlights the fine line at how much does the drought actually help the fertilizer in the farm equipment makers or how much does it hurt? because what they were seeing the caution because of the broader economy and the pull-back in anticipation of next painting season. and there's also mosaics most notable problems, lower beginning inventories to the season and lower mississippi river levels. their ability to meet on the production side was impaired and the ability to get the product to customers was also impaired. sort of a double whammy. >> i always find in if you look through and come one the reasons, that's a mistake. people wanted -- they are used to having the fertilizers, but this is the interview. daviders it was almost as if the guy felt entitled that the stock goes higher. this is wrong. it should be higher. that doesn't work. >> it's a strange one to make an activist case. you saw it down a bit
